Key Benefits of Lawn Mulching
If you’re looking for a fast and simple way to add beauty and appeal to your home or business, mulch is it. Beyond its aesthetic benefits, mulch helps to discourage weed germination. During the summer, mulch can help keep your soil moist, which is critical during long, dry stretches of hot temperatures. In the winter, mulch can help protect plant roots from the dangers associated with frost. Best of all, mulch requires little to no maintenance and comes in a variety of colors.
There are several other key advantages of using mulch in your landscaping. When you allow our mulching crew to apply mulch at your home or business, you can rest easy knowing that we are improving the appearance and health of your lawn. Depending on the type used, mulch can add substantial nutrients to the soil, which is essential for maintaining a healthy, green lawn. Mulch can also be beneficial in controlling insects and disease and keeping hedges and plants in proper shape.
Mulching begins early in the year before spring annuals are planted and perennials emerge. In most flower beds, a 3-inch thick layer of mulch is optimal for both appearance and plant health. In landscaping beds with shrubs and dense flowers, a slightly lighter layer of mulch is sufficient. Thick layers of mulch can also be added around trees, bushes, and other areas of your landscaping adding to the appearance of your home or business and to help maintain a more consistent soil temperature year-round.
Our lawn care services aim to suit your individual tastes, needs, and budget. Allow our team to design a custom landscape design featuring thick, visual appealing mulch in key locations to enhance the overall layout of your property. Mulch is also beneficial for covering bare patches in your yard, or simply adding color to a boring landscape. When it comes to mulching in our residential and commercial clients have plenty of options to choose from.
Depending on the desired function, we offer a full range of mulch options. Some of these options include pebble mulch, gravel, rock mulch, straw mulch, pumice rock mulch, grass clippings, landscape fabric, newspaper or cardboard, wood chips, pine straw, sawdust, and shredded bark.
